Scarborough’s Talented Apprentices Recognised Success- Press Release

STARS Awards 2016 – Press Release


STARS ‘Scarborough's Talented Apprentices Recognised with Success’ is set to happen for the second year running on 22nd July 2016 at The Scarborough Spa. Last year was the first collaborative apprenticeship awards ceremony in the borough organised by current/ex apprentices, which provides an opportunity for both employers and providers to vote for their very own outstanding apprentices! With nearly 300 guests including the Mayor of Scarborough, business small, medium and large represented from across the Borough and a wealth of young talent from the apprentices.

This year the event is generously sponsored by (with packages still available):

• Yorkshire Coast Homes- Main Event Sponsor
• Keepmoat - Sponsor of Tables/Table Settings
• Willmott and Dixon – Sponsor of Arrival Drinks
• Yorkshire Coast College – Part Sponsor of Entertainment
• Alexander Dennis Plaxton – Sponsor of the Specialist Categories
• YH Training Services – Sponsor of the Apprenticeship Categories

The evening is set to be a prestigious black tie event, with a fun packed evening of entertainment and an enjoyable three course meal which is fully funded for all apprentices and guests by the event sponsors; however if you don’t make the invite list or would like to support someone you know, additional tickets can be purchased at Scarborough Jobmatch.

Apprenticeships numbers are steadily increasing within the Borough of Scarborough and this is now an opportunity for these people to be recognised for the drive and ambitious they bring to businesses. Apprentices do not get a graduation ceremony when they finish their time, so this is an event to aspire to and be proud of when reaching the finals.

We would like to declare that nomination forms are officially open! If you would like to nominate someone you know, by all means you can email or call into Scarborough Jobmatch at 32 St Nicholas Street or any local apprenticeship training providers to collect your form entailing full details for criteria’s. The nomination closing date is 31st May 2016.

Katie Abley, Employment and Skills Partnership Manager at Scarborough Jobmatch/ Project Manager of STARS 2016 said:
“The committee have been working extremely hard to ensure the event succeeds and gets bigger and better year upon year! We are all so passionate about the event and what it stands for; truly believing that the event gives recognition where it is deserved! We would also like to thank our amazing Sponsors as without them, the event wouldn’t happen so thank you! “
